So after many many hours of deal searching we decided that it was better to be centrally located on 5th ave and go to different restaurants every night than to stay a few miles away in an all inclusive. I read the reviews from posada and decided to give it a shot, especially since I heard good things about the suite.
Booking was a breeze, email, paypal...done! Got the every so popular suite #5 for 5 nights.
Check-in was at about 2 I think and there was a guy sitting in a chair outside and we were in our room in less than 30 seconds.
Room was everything you needed. Nice ceramic tile floors, AC, Cable TV, big shower ( although water pressure was a little off but hey its mexico) and big bed with the all notorious rock hard mattress but again...its mexico. The best was the balcony where two french doors open to. There is a hammock where we spent some time napping and the view is great for people watching centrally located on 5th in between 8th and 10th.
The room was cleaned everyday by I'd say 3pm and of course we left a couple bucks a day for tip which in turn gets you a spotless room and a nice towel animal...very nice!
As far as everyone talking about the noise...yes siesta fiesta is next door but it didnt bother us and the suite is the only room that is open to the front of 5th ave. The sun and margaritas beat us up so bad that we were in bed sound asleep by midnight or so every night and as far as people saying there are mariachi bands playing in the morning or music...we woke up around 10am everyday to go to the beach and people were just opening their shops so again no noise here.
Grounds were kept immaculate with a nice courtyard and two family chiuauas running around
checkout was easy and a smooth walk to the ADO which by the way is the easiest and cheapest way to get to playa. Overall I must say for the price which I believe was about 90 bucks a night you couldn't ask for more and when I return to playa I will most definitely stay there.
